When John Kerry flew into Havana on Friday morning, he became the first Secretary of State to visit Cuba since 1945. Kerry was just one-year-old back then. Hundreds of Cubans gathered on the streets in front of the U.S. Embassy to see the event unfold. Others leaned over balconies to catch a glimpse of history in the making. CCTV’s Michael Voss filed the story. Video Rating: / 5
The USA re-opened it’s embassy in Cuba more than 54 years after it was closed, in a step signalling the warming of ties between both countries.

“Watched over by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, U.S. Marines raised the American flag at the embassy in Cuba for the first time in 54 years on Friday, symbolically ushering in an era of renewed diplomatic relations between the two Cold War-era foes.
Three retired Marines who last lowered the flag in 1961 participated in the ceremony, handing a new flag to the Marine Color Guard, which raised it on the grounds outside the embassy building on the Havana seafront.
Kerry, the first U.S. secretary of state to visit Cuba in 70 years, told the ceremony it was obvious that “the road of mutual isolation and estrangement that the United States and Cuba have been traveling is not the right one and that the time has come for us to move in a more promising direction.””*
